Climate Vulnerability Assessments

NOAA Fisheries assesses the vulnerability of fish stocks, protected species (mammals, sea turtles), habitats and fishing communities to changing climate and ocean conditions, to better prepare the many diverse people and businesses that depend on them.

Alaska Stock Assessments

A variety of data are input into computer models to estimate population size and trends for fish, crabs and marine mammals generating a stock assessment report. Research surveys provide biological, ecological and environmental data. Independent fishery observers collect information on commercial fisheries catches. We also compile socio-economic data on fishing communities.
